Mazda CX-3: i-ACTIVSENSE / Traffic Sign Recognition System (TSR)(Some models)

Mazda CX-3 (2015-2022) Owner's Manual / When Driving / i-ACTIVSENSE / Traffic Sign Recognition System (TSR)(Some models)

The TSR helps prevent the driver from overlooking traffic signs, and provides support for safer driving by displaying traffic signs on the active driving display which are recognized by the Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) or recorded in the navigation system while the vehicle is driven.

The TSR displays the speed limit, do not enter, and traffic stop signs. If the vehicle speed exceeds the speed limit sign indicated in the active driving display while the vehicle is driven, the system notifies the driver using the indication in the active driving display and a warning sound.

NOTE

  • The TSR is not supported in some countries or regions. For information concerning the supported countries or regions, consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer.
  • The TSR operates only if the navigation system SD card (Mazda genuine) is inserted in the SD card slot. Consult an Authorized Mazda Dealer for details.

WARNING

Always check the traffic signs visually while driving.

The TSR helps prevent the driver from overlooking traffic signs and provides support for safer driving. Depending on the weather conditions or problems with traffic signs, a traffic sign may not be recognized or a traffic sign different from the actual traffic sign may be displayed. Always make it your responsibility as a driver to check the actual traffic signs. Otherwise, it could result in an accident.

NOTE

  • The TSR does not operate if there is a malfunction in the Forward Sensing Camera (FSC).
  • Under the following conditions, the TSR may not operate normally.

    • The illumination of the headlights is weakened because of dirt or the optical axis is deviated.
    • The windshield is dirty or foggy.
    • The windshield and camera are fogged (water droplets).
    • Strong light is directed at the front of the vehicle (such as backlight or high-beam headlights of on-coming vehicles).
    • The vehicle is making a sharp turn.
    • Strong light reflects off the road.
    • A traffic sign is in a position which makes it difficult to reflect the light from the vehicle's headlights, such as when the vehicle is driven at night or in a tunnel.
    • The vehicle is driven under weather conditions such as rain, fog, or snow.
    • The stored map data for the navigation system is not current.

NOTE

Speed limit signs

  • When the vehicle speed is about 1 km/h (0.6 mph) or faster, the speed limit sign is displayed when any one of the following conditions are met.
    • The Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) recognizes a speed limit sign as a sign targeted for your vehicle and the vehicle passes it.
    • The speed limit sign stored in the navigation system is read (if the Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) does not recognize a speed limit sign).
  • In the following cases, display of the speed limit sign stops.
    • The Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) recognizes the speed limit sign and the vehicle is driven for a certain distance after passing the sign.
    • Each sensor determines that the vehicle has changed direction of travel.
    • The Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) recognizes a new speed limit sign which differs from the previous one (displays the new speed limit sign).
    • The speed limit sign stored in the navigation system is not read within a certain period of time (if the Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) does not recognize a speed limit sign, the speed limit sign stored in the navigation system is displayed).
    • The vehicle speed exceeds the displayed speed limit sign by 30 km/h (19 mph) or more after a certain period of time has elapsed since the speed limit sign was displayed. (Except when there is information for the speed limit sign in the navigation system)

Do not enter signs

  • A do not enter sign is displayed when all of the following conditions are met.
    • The vehicle speed is about 60 km/h (37 mph) or slower.
    • The Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) recognizes a do not enter sign as a sign targeted for your vehicle and the vehicle passes it.
  • When the Forward Sensing Camera (FSC) recognizes the do not enter sign and a certain period of time has elapsed since the vehicle passed the sign, display of the do not enter sign stops.

Stop sign

  • A stop sign is displayed when all of the following conditions are met:
    • The vehicle speed is about 30 km/h (19 mph) or slower.

 Excessive Speed Warning

If the vehicle speed exceeds the speed limit sign displayed in the active driving display, the area around the speed limit sign flashes three times in amber and the warning sound is activated three times at the same time. If the vehicle speed continues to exceed the displayed speed limit sign, the indication stops flashing and remains on. Check the surrounding conditions and adjust the vehicle speed to the legal speed using the appropriate operation such as depressing the brake pedal.
